Happy New Year!
I am currently enjoying sitting down with my first green smoothie of 2015. :P Naturally, I created a somewhat horrible time-lapse of the whole thing, so at some point perhaps I'll actually post the recipe but in general I made it with broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, pineapple, and cucumber. Pretty delicious if I do say so myself.
Being that it's the first day of 2015 I feel obligated to start off on a clean note. Having spent most of the morning de-glitterizing our apartment, I can finally say that this apartment is looking clean. Now exhausted, I feel like its time to start planning ahead for January. As many of you may know I have recently been undergoing pain in my right leg, later to be categorized as an OCD lesion in the cartilage of my right femur bone. I'll create a more organized diagram post explaining it more in depth, but basically I'll gearing up for surgery on January 13th. So, LOTS OF THINGS TO DO. lol
I can definitely say that I am both nervous and excited for the future right now. I am so glad that this issue seems more finite now that I have the date scheduled. I am hoping for a speedy recovery, and am told that being young has its advantages. My father is going to be coming to help nurse me that first week, as I won't be able to bend or put any weight on my leg for 4-6 weeks. I don't feel like I stayed home sick all that often during my middle/high school years so I'm sure it'll be a great father-son bonding time. It'll feel nice to be stuck in doors and catch up on some good Netflix. Father, you should bring over some good ol' Charlie Chaplin and Jerry Lewis so we can veg out on old classics.
On the other hand, I'm supposed to use this time to be productive, right? (Ugh...) I mean, I would love to say that I'm going to use this time indoors to write and choreograph the new musical of 2015. But let's be honest, how about I start a little smaller.... I look forward to working on small projects while being stuck indoors. I want to use this time efficiently, but I also know that I shouldn't expect myself to be doing anything for that first month or two. The priority is healing. I need to focus on staying indoors and being positive.
With that said, I guess today marks 12 days in counting until surgery.
The checklist begins, and things start becoming more real. I'm mainly afraid for keeping the apartment an environment that doesn't get too dark. I need lots of help keeping myself from just sleeping the day away. I'm sure that physical therapy will help with at least giving me something to do in the return back to a normal walking life. Whoohoo! :P And before you know it, I'll be able to dance again and get around New York City with much more ease.
I hope that you, like me, are looking forward to a good 2015 and are motivated to take action!
